Write a letter to your former roommate in your university and invite him/her to visit your city during the summer vacation. You should write about 100 words. You don?t need to write your own address.
How are you getting on recently? I am wondering if you have made a definite plan for the coming summer holidays. If not, I wish you could come here and visit my city. My family are also glad to receive you as a popular guest in my home.
My hometown is a very beautiful seashore city. There are many places of interest worthy of sightseeing. Besides, the local style food here is also well?known. Don?t you tell me in the letter that you have been dreaming of the sea? The place where I live is located near the sea. Every day you can walk on the seashore, pick up seashells and even enjoy swimming in the sea.
Hoping to see you in my hometown as soon as possible.

申请信(Application Letter) 申请信是向机构、团体或个人申请帮助、资金等的信件。其写作要点如下： (1)开门见山指出自己要申请的职位、学位或其他特别的要求。 (2)指出自己要申请的理由，并简要介绍自己的学历和工作经历等。 (3)向对方表示感谢，说明自己盼望所申请之事能够得到允许的心情。 【例文】 Directions: Suppose you are a university student, write a letter to apply for a visa for the winter quarter, and want to get much more financial aid for your study. 1) Describe your reason for the application. 2) Explain why you are so eager to the financial funds. 3) Show your appreciation to the admittance. You should write about 100 words. Do not sign your own name at the end of the letter. Use “Mei Yang” instead. Dear sir, Thank you for your e?mail and kind offer! Definitely, I would like to try to apply for a visa for the winter quarter. I understand that both you and Professor Black have tried very hard to help me with my situation and I appreciate your efforts. As it is true that nobody really knows why the visa officers refuse certain applicants and allow others, I have been told by several successful visa re?applicants that re?applying with a new I?20 with a slightly different offer from the US schools would help. For example, a slight increase in financial aid and so on. I don?t know whether this is something possible for you to consider for my situation. But I would really appreciate if you could consider some possibilities. I know that I have given you enough trouble and please ignore my request if it is too difficult for you to do. I will simply try my best to get my visa and come to your school. Sincerely yours, Mei Yang I would like to try to apply for... 我想要申请…… I understand that both you and Professor Black have tried very hard to help me with my situation and I appreciate your efforts. 我知道你和布莱克教授已经竭尽全力地帮助我，对此我十分感激。 I know that I have given you enough trouble and please ignore my request if it is too difficult for you to do. 我知道我给你带来了很多麻烦，如果这件事情对于你来说太困难，请忽略我的申请。
